Missing Hiker Found

A RAT-SAR team member recently assisted with a missing person rescue at Beaman Park north of Nashville, Tennessee. Wallace “Buzz” Carter, age 67, did not return to his vehicle after a hike that began around mid-day on Saturday, September 28. Rescue operations were conducted all day Sunday before being called at 6 p.m. Efforts continued on Monday morning, and RAT-SAR member Jason Lovvorn (photo above) went out in Monday’s first search group, sweeping terrain around a trail currently under construction. Around 10 a.m., the call came in that Carter had been found in good shape on nearby private land by a volunteer searching on an ATV. The entire RAT-SAR team is pleased that rescue efforts ended happily¬†for Carter and his family.
